Risk
The crimping of the brake hoses on the steered front axles, the steered leading and trailing axles can come loose. This could cause the braking action of the service brake, depending on the steered axle affected, to partially fail. If it fails on one side, the vehicle will yaw to the side when braking. In vehicles fitted with a front axle parking brake, the front wheel could also be blocked by the parking brake. This could increase the risk of accidents.
